Alfa Laval LKH Prime Pump

The Alfa Laval LKH Prime is a self-priming pump based on air-screw technology. It offers superior operational efficiency and reduced energy use for the most demanding sanitary processing applications. The LKH Prime is designed primarily for use in CIP applications containing entrained air, but can also pump product, minimizing capital investment.

  • Versatile: Engineered for Cleaning-in-Place duties containing entrained air, it can also pump product, reducing the need for an additional pump, lowering capital investment.
  • Quality, reliability: Based on the trusted design of the LKH pump family that’s trusted for dependability.  
  • Quiet, hygienic: This pump operates very quietly and is certified according to the strictest hygienic design standards.
  • Simple service: Sharing many common parts with the Alfa Laval LKH pump range, it is easy to maintain and service.

Hygienic Pump Applications

The LKH Prime has the ability to evacuate air from the suction pipe combined with minimum noise level and maximum pumping efficiency makes it perfect for tank emptying and CIP return applications. With verified effective CIP cleanability, LKH Prime can also be used as a product pump.  

Sanitary Design

The LKH Prime is designed to be cleaned in place. Based on the LKH, the Prime has a stainless steel surround for protection of the motor, and the entire unit is supported on four adjustable stainless steel legs. Unlike conventional self-priming pumps the LKH Prime has an impeller which can be trimmed for any application.
The LKH Prime is equipped with either an external single or a double mechanical shaft seal. Both have stationary seal rings made from stainless steel AISI 329 with sealing surface in silicon carbide and rotating seal rings in carbon as standard.
